The internationalization of higher education has emerged as a major theme within the interdisciplinary field of higher education research. Early work in the 1990s and 2000s traced the contours of the issue and research on the topic has grown since, in step with internationalization itself. In recent years, critical studies and counter-visions of internationalization have emerged.
This post chronicles a multi-year journey I embarked upon as a doctoral student: a journey to create a database of higher education journals and conferences (which you can find linked at the end of the post).
For a while now, university rankings have been intensely debated all over the world. Despite the prevailing sentiment among academics that rankings are harming the academic profession, the actual resistance to this practice is – at best – scattered and not sufficiently heard, especially at the international level, which is where the most influential of rankings are produced.
SRHE International Conference on Research into Higher Education is an annual event, organised in Newport, South Wales every December. Before the main conference, which takes place from Wednesday to Friday, there is a Newer and Early Career Researchers Conference organised on the day before. This is an excellent arena for early career researchers to present their work in a relaxed atmosphere, and to meet peers from all over the world.
